  • Milestone changed from Fall 2011 to The Distant Future

This is not as simple as we think it is. The --kiosk command line switch exists, but is not documented in the list of stable switches. Right-clicking on a link and choosing "Open in new window" gets you a fully functional chrome window, etc. And in Kiosk mode, you don't get a URL bar (and we kind of want one). I don't know what the right answer is here.
